Fate of the World is a dramatic global strategy game that puts all our futures in your hands. The game features a dramatic set of scenarios based on the latest science covering the next two centuries. You must manage a balancing act of protecting the Earth’s resources and climate versus the needs of an ever-growing world population, who are demanding ever more food, power, and living space. Will you help the whole planet or will you be an agent of destruction?

Fate of the World reviews and comments

Bock-heavy Climate Simulation. Appacts superficially Like a Deck of cards, but the Consequences of each Action are enormously complex. Urs Thinking and Bagging ... The Level of difficulty is sometimes just frustrating, but for a "Serious Game" it's amazingly addictive.

Those who like the Genre and prefer Complexity and Planning rather than action-packed Graphic Explosions are certainly the right place here. Especially considering the faian Price. Sometimes, however, one-two Explanations would be more helpful. Overall, but as a Lover of the Genre, clear Buy recommendation!

nice game to put only in the hands of English speaking people and loving the global management games xD me I well took my foot on it and it is with great sorrow that I managed to finish three scenarios on the proposed 5-6, this games will go in my c offline ollection on the laptop so I play it anywhere anytime ^^

A seemingly pushed game, but whose mechanics seem to have been rather created by Western capitalistic dogs short of paradigmisque imagination. In other words, not really way to change thinking (only one model is validated, capitalism and progress seems to be to live like a Westerner) nor to be a true ecolo in this game. On the other hand, we're all going to die, but I don't know if the game did it on purpose. Oh yes and it is only in English.

Fate of the World Looks simple At first with its turn-based card game mechanics, but behind the bendy façade Hides a Strategy game with a very high Degree of Difficulty and a remarkable number of tactical Options. But what can be expected when it comes to leading the World through the Crises of climate Change and increasing Resource Scarcity? The Game creates the clever Balancing Act to generate Both fun and open up one's own Awareness of the Seriousness and Complexity of the topics covered. In spite of his playful Problems (for example, the Becoming struck by complex Statistics), I consider it one of the most important Games of recent Years. Fate of the World should buy anyone interested in the political Implications of climate Change and/or a challenging Round strategy game with an unusual Scenario looking and/or gladly watching what Effects the playing Around at the Pitter Screws of a complex System. As mentioned in other Reviews, Fate of the World Can also be purchased by Supporting the Kickstarter project for the Successor: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1770504072/fate-of-the-world-online-a-game-about-climate-chan/description tl ;d r Have thinned the Population with Contraceptives in Drinking Water and distracted people from it with Pop Music. 11/10
